Linda and I were so happy to see the turn out of linked posts last week. Please remember to either grab the button above or just add a link on your thrifty post to this party. Also, we really want to keep this party all about thrifty things. And that can be in any area so long as it is thrifty. Show us your thrifty finds, recipes, tips, household ideas, family activities, home decorating, gardening, parties, celebrations or any other money saving ideas. We all love to be able to save money here and there and enjoy getting new ideas from all of you!
Awhile back, I completely scrubbed down the upstairs hallway, did a major decluttering of things I never thought I would part with and even took everything on the walls down and spackled all the holes.
I got it into my head that I was going to paint this area with a color that was our of my comfort zone. And what color would that be? Brown…a milk chocolate brown! Not a color I normally would think of for this space since it is a small interior space with no windows. But, the need for drastic change consumed me!
Okay, so I didn’t set out to buy brown paint, I just kept making the rounds at Home Depot and Lowes to check on their “Oops” paints and figured when I spotted something that clicked, I would get it and that would be the color of the hallway.
See, this is just one more reason why I am not one of the cool, awesome big bloggers out there! I love to visit all the amazing home decorating blogs. And they do beautiful makeovers after pouring hours into looking over different paint samples and decided on the perfect shade of off white. And of course, it always turns out perfectly wonderful.
Nope, not me! I let the marked down mistake paint guide me! LOL What's worse, is I blog about it and tell you all! I should be saying something like…”after consulting numerous paint samples and buying a few quarts of couple of different colors and painting areas on the wall and making sure I test it to show what it would look like when the sun hits it or in the evening glow of lamps…….” etc.
Now they are brown and white. I really like the way the color turned out. There are four different doors in this hallway space so, there is a lot of white trim to break up the brown.
Linda and I can’t wait to see what you have to share with us this week!
